We have stayed at a number of hotels in Morganton while visiting family in NC. Other hotels in the area are more modern, but we went back to this one specifically because of the nice, outdoor pool & reasonable rates.
We arrived at the hotel 5 hours early but were pleasantly surprised to find that we could check in. The receptionist and other staff was quite pleasant, and I was checked in and in my room in only minutes.
As far as the room, it could use some updates (e.g. Tv quality was awful), but it was as clean as you could get considering the age of the property.. After one night, all three adults were already aching for our home beds, as the bed quality is lacking. (Bring your own pillows too, as the house pillows are small & squish down to almost nothing. Interestingly enough, the housekeeping staff knocked on our door when we were still there in the morning and asked what we needed, gave us some towels, and didn't come back that day.
The grounds are pretty well kept, and the kids love the pool. It's an older pool, so it has a deep end, which is somewhat unusual these days, and is fairly good sized. The pool chairs were hit or miss, with some missing slats, but as far as the kids were concerned, we should go back to that hotel just for the pool.
Breakfast was fine - very typical of many hotels chains, with make-your-own waffles, fruit, cereal, et.
All in all, there are nicer hotels in the immediate area, but it's unlikely that staying here will ruin your trip. I heard from relatives that the Sleep Inn next door (same hotel company) refreshed their rooms, and I think they may share the pool, so you may be able to stay there for a comparable price and make use of the Quality Inn's pool.
